I Think These "Instant Outfits" Are the Best Things to Buy This Summer

·2-min read

If you thought co-ords were only appropriate for the under-21s heading out to V Festival, think again. This season, we've been inundated with rather grown-up co-ords that are practical for every day. The glory of these matchy-matchy pieces is that the full outfit is already styled up. Not to mention, you can create additional outfits with the pieces. Win-win.

Faithfull the Brand initially put me in full holiday mode with its variations of matching casual tailored pieces. But Mango, Arket and H&M have held up the high-street side nicely with a range of chic linen co-ords and fun floral prints.

If prints are one step too far for you, & Other Stories has a super-chic answer in the form of an all-beige skirt-and-tank duo that's an ideal summer look. We're not alone in this theory: Keep scrolling to see how our favourite girls are wearing this trend for summer and to shop some of our top co-ords.

Style Notes: A white linen co-ord is the height of chic. A straw sun hat is always the perfect partner to linens, and this season, we're spoilt for choice.

Style Notes: A printed shorts-and-shirt set is the original summer co-ord, and it's back this year. Team it with fun, colour-clashing accessories for the ideal vacay look.

Style Notes: Opt for a grown-up co-ord by wearing matching chunky knits as Monikh has.
